HP Spectre Folio / Hybrid notebook

The HP Spectre Folio offers a new form factor, evoking a luxury experience using authentic, natural-grain leather. When closed, it has a retro quality, like a leather-bound notebook. When open, the leather acts as part of the hinge, and adjusts to type or view positions. The bottom of the screen can come forward and lock into position at the front of the palmrest, hiding the keyboard for media presentation. With the laptop closed, the gentle curve of the leather around the hinge fits comfortably in the hand, just like a well-loved paper notepad.
